The SV10 revolutionizes the S-value testing, by introducing the first fully automated instrument complying with ASTM D7157, which includes a unique, temperature controlled, high precision measuring cell (patent pending).
The SV10 is bringing a major improvement in handling, accuracy and test duration. Straightforward and user friendly, the SV10 does not need any operator action during the test or application expert: it comes with all programs ready for the different sample types described in ASTM D7157.
In addition, the SV10 eliminates all safety risks linked to the manipulation of hazardous solvents.
The SV10 is a straightfoward automated instrument that strictly follows the test method ASTM D7157. The test preparation is simplified and the test is run unattended, simultaneously, on the 3 positions.
The temperature controlled high precision measuring cell (patent pending), combined with the simplified weighting procedure and automated toluene dilution of the SV10 are significantly improving the precision of the test. Indeed, the test is not anymore dependant on the ambient temperature, and the toluene dilution is precisely performed according to the sample‘s weigh, independently from the operator.
The SV10 is a “Set it and Forget it” instrument. Once the titration cups are weighted and positioned on the instrument, the operator keys in the test details and starts the test. Then all the test phases (dilution, titration and cleaning) are automatic. The operator time is reduced to its minimum. At the end of the test, the titration results are displayed and the stability results are automatically computed and transferred if the SV10 is connected to a LIMS system.
The SV10 has a built in result database. All details related to each test result are memorized. In addition, all information related to the instrumentcalibration is memorized to ensure a perfect traceability.
The SV10 totally eliminates all safety risks linked to the manipulation of hazardous solvents.
The 3 positions standalone automated SV10 instrument does not need much bench space: the width is only 44cm.
Running a test with the SV10 is straightforward and very easy, the operator:
(1) weight the sample(s)
(2) position up to 3 samples in parallel on the SV10
(3) close the door and initiate the test(s)
Then the all procedure is automated: toluene dilution, heptane titration, measure of the flocculation point and cleaning. Detection curves are displayed in real time, and the SV10 computes the stability results according to the selected titration tests.
A detailed report of the titrations and S-value determinations are displayed and saved in the built-in database. They can be printed, transmitted to LIMS or copied to USB stick.
